Transforming Midvale's Historic Main Street into an
Art, Culture, and Food District

Preserve the Downtown Vibe

The historic Main Street area has been shaped by significant factors throughout its history. These events have physically isolated the Main Street neighborhood which has led to decades of struggle and decline. Recent investment has provided momentum for positive change. This momentum is fueled by several opportunities for new development, redevelopment, and investment in many local civic, institutional, cultural, and transportation assets.

The Redevelopment Agency of Midvale City is working to revitalize Midvale’s Main Street to allow the historic downtown’s history, character, and charm to shine once again and transform Midvale’s Main Street into an art, culture, and food district. Beautifying public areas improves the quality of life for Midvale residents and enhances Midvale’s unique culture, identity, and community spirit.

Arts

Midvale City and the Redevelopment Agency of Midvale City partnered with ALL CAPS Art Gallery and Creative Space to turn Main Street into a thriving arts district full of life and color.

  • On April 30, 2022, ALL CAPS hosted Creators Conference, an educational development event for artists and creators, on Main Street. This unique experience empowered participants to learn and grow into qualified leaders in their fields.
  • On June 18, 2022, Main Street was overrun with talented artists, scissor lifts, and ladders, and bathed in hundreds of gallons of paint during the Midvale Main Street Mural Festival. Talented local and national artists adorned building walls, enlivened streetscapes, and beautified the community. Attendees witnessed the creative process in action.

Food Truck Fridays @ Midvale Main Street

Midvale City partnered with the Food Truck League to host League Nights over the summer on Main Street. The League rotated food trucks throughout the summer. The goal of Food Truck Fridays was to gauge interest before building the Main Street Food Truck Plaza on the street’s north end.

Midvale Art House

The formation of the Midvale Art House is one element of a larger Main Street revitalization concept focused around bringing arts, culture, and unique dining experiences to Old Town Midvale. The vision is to create an artistic and culture hub within Main Street that will provide a unique feel and experience and will be enjoyed by locals from both Midvale and the Greater Salt Lake Valley. This project goes far beyond embedding public artists' work. With the completion of this project, the Art House will cultivate the talent of local artists, celebrate local artists, and increase appreciation for local art. This project along with a host of other funding programs will contribute to providing a vibrant mix of business to Main Street with a high focus on arts and culture. The Art House will be a key addition to vibrancy, it will take advantage of an existing City building and provide a community asset that would not otherwise be provided by the market.
